Boards & Commissions

Serve on a County Advisory Board and/or Commission

Howard County Boards and Commissions play an important role in fostering citizen involvement in our government. County Boards or Commissions cover a wide variety of topics ranging from the environment, fire and rescue services and cable, just to name a few.  Board or Commission members advise various County personnel on specific matters for which they are an expert. In some instances, Board or Commission members recommend or comment on legislation, budget items or other important policy changes.
